SFMLab is currently in READ-ONLY mode

SFMLab will soon be migrated to a new codebase. In preparation for this, we have temporarily disabled some site functionality, namely the features listed below. This is necessary to ensure the move will not lead to accidental data-loss. You should still be able to download existing files available on the site.(although the EU server will suffer from reduced availability)

SFMLab will stay in read-only mode until the end of February, when the migrations are set to conclude.

Dota 2 reworked heroes (Part 1)


I was really dissapointed about Dota models for SFM. I’m not a modeller, but I did my best by editing their textures. There are still a lot of the problems with heroes models like shitty fingers, bones etc. I have tried make them look like their analogs from Valve’s arts.

The changes I made with heroes:

  • All 256x256 textures are 4x higher now
  • All “painted” shadows was removed
  • Almost all painted eyeballs were replaced with real human eyes
  • Almost all lips are now textured like real human lips
  • Almost all “dirty” textures are now cleared
  • Drow Ranger and Windranger are now have actual teeth instead of some mess

Part 1 contains:

  • Mirana
  • Keeper of the Light
  • Phantom Assassin
  • Pugna
  • Queen of Pain
  • Silencer
  • Vengeful Spirit
  • Windranger

Special thanks:

  • Yaroslav Gordienko for saving Source 1 Dota content before it was ported to Source 2
  • Slavka Alexeev aka Portman for helping with .VMT files
  • Keller Max for helping with WR and Drow's teeth

Just drop all folders in your SFM/usermod folder (or in SFM/Dota if you got one)

I HIGHLY recommend you tou use auto-rigger for rigging them!

That new Mirana is even uglier, the offical now we have is fine, it got reworked some time ago

@ShawaZawa She is reworked only on Source 2. In our case – not a big deal. Better not to use her at all.
